This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Jan. 10, 2018

"So I would emphasize here that the onus of not messing up – it shouldn't be on President Moon. I think it really needs to be on the U.S."

– Catherine Killough, Ploughshares Fund Roger L. Hale fellow, on the progress South Korean President Mood Jae-in has made in tamping down tensions with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, during talks about the Winter Olympics. The onus is on the U.S. to provide kind of security assurance to North Korea that the U.S. is not going to topple their regime.

North and South Korea Talks Reduce Rising Tensions Weeks Before Olympic Games

MP3Interview with Catherine Killough, Ploughshares Fund Roger L. Hale fellow, conducted by Scott Harris

korea

After President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un spent the last several months trading threats and insults, including Trump’s boast that his “nuclear button” was bigger than Kim’s, recent talks between the North and South have begun to reduce rising tensions. Officials from both nations who met for negotiations at the border village of Panmunjom on Jan. 9, produced an agreement to send North Korean athletes to the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea next month and plans to schedule future meetings to improve relations.  Story continues

Trump Tweets Support Iran Protests Amid His Threats of Nuclear Agreement Withdrawal

MP3Interview with John Feffer, director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

iran

In the largest protests in Iran in nearly a decade, thousands of mostly working class people have taken to the streets to decry the nation’s weak economy, corruption and a steep rise in food and gas prices. There are reports that the first protests on Dec. 28 had been organized by hardliners opposed to reformist President Hassan Rouhani, but as the demonstrations spread across the country, economic demands transformed into bold challenges to the institutions of the Islamic Republic itself.  Story continues

Trump, GOP Transforming Judiciary with Rapid Confirmation of Extreme Right-Wing Judges

MP3Interview with Marge Baker, executive vice president, People for the American Way, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

judges

Many people on the left often ridicule President Donald Trump for running an inept administration. Yet one area where he’s already made a major impact is the judiciary, where changes to the confirmation process have facilitated many of his appointments. Under President Obama, Senate Republicans blocked votes to fill vacancies to the key D.C. Circuit Court, so Democrats changed the rules, requiring only a majority vote for confirmation of judges to lower courts, but kept the 60–vote requirement to confirm Supreme Court nominees.  Story continues
